Sharp Home Hits Market @ Forest Hills.

Girardeau1GirardeauDiningGirardeauSunA sharp home hit the market this afternoon! 3041 Girardeau Avenue, in Forest Hills, is move-in ready and features almost 1,700 square feet, 3 bedroom and 1.5 baths.

Complete with hardwoods and moldings, Girardeau is cleverly beautiful, replete with updates, and loaded with designer touches/colors. I mean seriously, just take a look at the link and pics above.

The property itself is full of lush greenery/landscaping/hardscapes, complete with a stellar fully fenced level backyard.

Awesome home and grounds notwithstanding, the best part about Girardeau may be the location and school zone. As many readers know, Forest Hills is minutes to anything downtown Columbia and feeds into the ultra popular Satchel Ford/Crayton/Flora collection of schools.

If you or anyone you know would like to know more about this home on Girardeau Avenue, please call 803-758-1669 or email . As you know, one of us is never more than five minutes away.

This is a well cared for, top shelf listing and I’m proud to have it as part of our inventory.

Thank you!


Downtown Columbia’s Newest Listings!

hotsheetThis edition of the HotSheet has some good new inventory, and a few homes that have returned after taking a break from the market. In all, there are 60 homes on the link to scroll through.

You may have noticed a few new signs in front of homes around downtown Columbia that you won’t see on the link. What gives, you may ask? There’s a good chance they were sold within days of hitting the market. 264 Tombee Lane @ King’s Grant comes to mind.

Happy clicking, and thank you!


Forest Hills Home For Sale; $360,000

CambridgeThursday morning 1311 Cambridge Road will be the newest listing to hit the downtown Columbia real estate market.  It’s too new to attach any links (the pic is a quick drive-by), and it may be midnight tomorrow night before the syndicated websites like Zillow/Trulia/ pick it up.  That said, this blog post may give a reader-buyer a jump on things.

The home is 2,590 square feet, with 4 bedrooms and 3 full baths.  It’s clean, sharp, and move in ready.  Features include hardwoods, smooth ceilings, and moldings, to name a few.  Overlooking a fully fenced lush backyard, the kitchen has new appliances, new slick looking subway tile, and a brand new granite slab counter tops.

Forest Hills is one of Columbia’s oldest and most prestigious neighborhoods.  It’s home to many of the city’s finest architecture, and Forest Hills is well known for having the most impressive tree scapes/canopies anywhere.

Be on the lookout for 1311 Cambridge Road.  At $360,000, it will be a well priced property for sale.

The kids of Forest Hills attend popular Satchel Ford Elementary school, and as most everyone in Columbia knows, Forest Hills is geographically the closest neighborhood to downtown Columbia, South Carolina.  “Cambridge” is literally minutes to anything downtown.

Please call 803-758-1669 or email if you’d like more information about 1311 Cambridge.  It’s a pleasure to show.

Thank you!


Downtown Columbia’s Newest Listings!

hotsheetIt’s been two weeks since I posted the last HotSheet and as most of you know, I like to have it live on Monday mornings. That said, since we were coming off a busy Memorial Day weekend, I dropped the ball a little bit! Booo…

Attached are the latest listings to hit the downtown Columbia, SC real estate market. This edition includes everything from $1 to $1Babillion in 29204, 29205, 29206, and 29209, respectively.

I think you’ll like the new format. I’ve minimized the actual amount of navigational clicks, as you can now scroll through all the properties continuously. It’s a smoother browsing experience, IMO.

If it asks you to register, don’t be afraid to create a dummy login…no problem.

If any of you would like to know more about the properties on The Hotsheet, please call 803-758-1669 or email or .

Home For Sale @ Forest Acres: $189,900

CherryLaurelCherryLaurelLivingCherryLaurelKitchenCherryLaurelBackMonday afternoon we put 2007 Cherry Laurel Drive on the market.  Located just off of Forest Drive, this move in ready home is smack in the middle of popular Forest Acres.

Cherry Laurel has 1,704 square feet with 3 bedrooms and 2 and a half baths.  Here’s a portion of the MLS remarks:  “Beautiful updates and shining hardwood floors. Eat-in kitchen with stainless appliances. Huge family room with cork flooring, small kitchenette, and full bath. New siding. Fenced backyard with recently installed retaining wall/planter boxes that include drip lines; remodeled deck; full sprinkler system; storage shed; and patio area. HVAC ’10. 2 paved driveways plus 1-car garage w/workshop.”

As nice as some of the features are, three standout IMO: 1)  The large downstairs family room is awesome (not pictured above) .  This will serve someone well as a playroom, game room, over-sized man cave, or Wii Room.  It’s as large or larger than most FROGs of a $500,000 home. 2) The double driveway is cleverly done.  There’s enough room for multiple cars, trailers, and/or boats…or whatever.  Folks can comfortably store a boat and still not have to ‘tandem’ park.  3)  Satchel Ford Elementary school.

Physical features notwithstanding, the best quality is the location.  Cherry Laurel is two blocks from what I call the ‘Forest Drive Corridor’ and only blocks away from Gold’s Gym, Trader Joes, Bonefish, and Trenholm Plaza (Starbucks, Fresh Market, Café Caturra).  Further still, the property is only 5ish minutes to I-77, or anything downtown Columbia.

If you or anyone you know would like more info about this updated Forest Acres home, please call 803-758-1669 or email / .   It’s a pleasure to show.

Thank you!

Believe SOME Of The Hype. It’s True…




If you’ve heard or read about an uptick in the real estate market, believe it – a lot of it, anyway.  While we’re not likely to ever see the likes of 2005 again (and that’s OK), homes are fetching contracts in downtown Columbia.

The pics above represent some of our inventory that currently enjoy the coveted “Pending Contract” label.   While I couldn’t put every listing on this post, you get the idea.  Rosebank, Wilmot, Girardeau, Thames, Devereaux, Shandon St, Linwood, Devereaux, Adger, and Congaree are a good snapshot of what’s moving in downtown Columbia, South Carolina.  This quick collection of homes are located within a small geographic proximity of each other which includes The Hamptons, Shandon, Forest Hills, Heathwood, and Wales Garden ranging in price levels of $175,000 – $950,000, respectively.

I don’t want to paint too rosy of a picture here, as the real estate world is far from perfect.  That said, if you’re thinking of putting a move-in ready home on the market, this may be the time to pull the trigger.  To illustrate, we have three families renting at 42 Magnolia and 1 family renting in Forest Hills that are all searching for their perfect four bedroom home in certain school zones.   This glut in the market is a whole ‘nother blog post, but now that I’ve put it out there please call 447-8683 if you know of anything coming to market!

Congratulations to the collection of sellers above.  Hopefully we can turn the “Pending Contract” signs riders into shiny red ones that read “CLOSED!”
